important thato the people of indiana have been incredible. i started, as you know, not very long ago, six weeks ago. i was told i had a 20-point deficit. i worked very hard, i campaign, made lots of beaches and met lots of incredible people. andcrowds got to figure it bigger and towards the end it was like i did not want to leave. i almost said, maybe i will just never leave. somehow and wed had a tremendous victory. . have to think bobby knight bobby knight was incredible. he was great. [applause] trump: i always tell you about it, you know, there are
too many people like that. tough, smart, and they know how to win. that is what our country needs. we have to know how to win. we have been losing all the time. we lose with our military, we cannot eat isis, we lose with trade, we lose with borders. we're not going to lose anymore. we're going to start winning again, and we're going to win big-link. league. back tonight and i began watching all the different networks, it looks like a massive victory. it looks like we want all 57 delegates. i must say, in staying in various places in indiana we had -- i turned on the television
and all i saw was negative ads. negative one after another after another. i called my people and i said, how can we win? it is this constantly. famous florida. 60,000 negative ads. i got it right for you folks, ok? 60,000. in fact, two weeks ago it was 55,000, now it is 60,000 negative vans full most of which are absolutely false and disgusting. and i said, how can anybody endure this. two nights agong where literally they had five ads on in between segments of a show i was watching. and i said, that is incredible. the people are so smart. they do not buy it. they get it. amounts of money
were spent. millions and millions of dollars. they think probably $8 million was spent against me. and we spent $900,000. to me, that is the way it is supposed to be. makes me feel really very, very good. now we are going to nebraska. i look forward to that very much. and west virginia and we are going to get those miners back to work. i tell you what. we are going to get those miners back to work. we are going to beat hillary clinton. i watched her three or four weeks ago when she was talking about the minors as if it were just numbers. she was talking about she wants the mines closed and she will never let them work again. miners inl you, the
pennsylvania and ohio and west virginia, they are going to start working get. let me tell you, they are going min so weud to be will be going there. ers. this tremendous run we had .tarted in new york with this 62% with two people is a massive landslide. but 63%, just a little over 62, when you have that kind of a isber with three people, it actually a unheard of. and all throughout it was 17 people, then 15 then 12, it was tremendous. getting very high numbers and some of the numbers in my bution, in a state with 32% there were 14 people, i think that might be actually more and better than letting 62% in new york but we never got credit for
that. but now we do not need the credit because we are going after hillary clinton. she will not -- [applause] trump: she will not be a great president. she will not be a good president. she will be a poor president. she does not understand trade. her husband signed, perhaps in the history of the world, the single worst trade deal ever done. it is called nafta. and i was witness to the carnage over the last six weeks especially. now, i have known syracuse, i have known for can see, and i and i have known poughkeepsie and maryland and other places. all of the different states. connecticut. i have witnessed what hit has done firsthand and it has been
carnage. we are going to change it around. we are not going to let carrier and all of these countries think they can move, go to another country, make their product and sell it back to us and we get only one thing. unemployment. not going to happen, folks. not going to happen anymore. we are going to bring back our jobs and we are going to keep our jobs. we're are not going to let companies leave. if they want to go to another state, good luck. compete. but if they start going to other countries, and in many cases countries that he valued their currency and make it impossible for our country to compete, that is not going to happen. not going to happen. and if they want to do it anyway there will be consequences. terry, very serious concert winces. serious very
consequences. i haveto tell you competed on light. a competitive person. all of my life i've been in competitions. competitions. sports, business, and now for 10 months politics. and i have to tell you that i have met some of the most incredible competitors that i have ever competed against right here on the republican party. we started off with a 17 number. understand, ted cruz, i don't know if he likes your does not like me but he is one hell of a competitor. he is a tough, it smart man. got an amazing future. he has got an amazing future and i want to congratulate ted.
i know how tough it is. it is tough. it is tough. i had moments when it was not looking so good and it's not a great feeling so i understand how ted feels and heidi. into their home, beautiful family. he was one tough competitor and i can say that the others. i mean, chris christie, who endorsed. incredible guy. dr. ben carson, who is right up there. one of the first. he just called me and said, it is a movement you have got going. we have got to do something because i tell you what, it is and dr.dible movement ben carson endorse me and i tell you what, he is an incredible man. and we want to keep him totally involved because we are
going to wean. we're going to win in november. [applause]
and we are going to win big. it's going to be america first. they do not respect us and they do not take your of us and they do not treat us right in many cases. that's not going to happen. we're
going to keep things going very closely. 30 $21 trillion in. now, but with the budget recently passed, it will be $21 trillion. we are not in the position we were in 30 years ago, 40 years ago with a lot of these things began taking place. we are going to have unbelievably good relationships with other countries. but likewise, they have to treat us fairly and understand what we have been doing over the years has been so wrong and so unfair to the united states and to its people, and to its taxpayers. that will change. and i will tell you they are
, going to end up liking us better than they do right now. they are going to respect us. in this building, right upstairs. [applause] mr. trump: in this building right upstairs, i have the largest bank in the world from china. the relationship is fantastic. we have great relationships with many foreign countries. but they have to respect us and understand where we are coming from. and you know, it is a two-way street. the two-way street means we are going down one side and they are coming up the other. we are going to meet and we are going to have something that is going to be fabulous. now, if that can't happen, if for some reason they want the system to continue the way it is going now, which is unfair and not good, where we are spending trillions and trillions of dollars in the middle east, and we have to rebuild our infrastructure, our roads, our bridges can our airports and
hospitals, we have become close to a third world country. you look at some of the airports, it is third world. then you go to other places and you see places like you have never seen. so i have to tell you that we are going to build that our military bigger, better, stronger than ever before. it's the cheapest thing we can do. and we are going to have to take out isis and we are going to have to take them out fast. we can't allow that cancer to continue. we cannot allow it. you know the one group has been so incredible to me. the veterans. they have been treated so badly. so, we going to get that. we are going to get that straightened out. now, one of the things that just happened, which is very
exciting, the rasmussen poll came out yesterday. and in that poll, i am now leading hillary clinton. isn't that incredible? a lot of great things. [applause] [crowd chanting "trump"] mr. trump: that is going to continue. they are not going to be able to do it. they are not going to be able to make great trade deals. they are not going to be able to do what we are going to do with the military and the border, including the wall. we are going to have unbelievably great relationships with the hispanics, who have been so incredible to me. they want jobs. everybody wants jobs. the african-americans want jobs. you look at what is going on. they want jobs. [applause] are going tod we
bring back our jobs and save our jobs. people are going to have great jobs again. this country, which is very divided in so many different ways is going to become one beautiful, loving country. we are going to love each other, cherish each other, take care of each other, and we are going to have great economic developments. we are not going to let other countries take it away from us. that is what has been happening for far too many years. we are not going to do it anymore. we are not going to do it anymore. [applause] mr. trump: i want to thank and congratulate the republican national committee, and reince priebus. it is not an easy job. when he had 17 egos. now, i guess he is down to one. is there a second? [applause] to askmp: i will have
you folks to explain the status of that, but he has done an amazing job. we're going to see something really fantastic. i want to thank my staff, paul, corey, hope. i mean these people. , what we have been doing is incredible. , the work has been unreal. and jared. -- marrieddaughter to my daughter ivanka. he is a very successful real estate person, but i think he likes politics. i did not expect this. and what ted cruz did was a brave thing to do. and a good thing to do. because we want to bring unity to the republican party.
we have to bring unity. it is so much easier if we have people areany, many calling. like you would not believe. people who have said the worst things about me. i have never had things said about me like this. i have beensses, very respected. people did not talk to me this way. the worst things. they are calling us and they are saying, we would love to get on the trump train. the trump train, they call it. but we would love to get on the train. and i actually spoke to one today and -- who was vicious -- i mean, this guy was unbelievable. and i said, i love having you and, you know, i think it is terrific that after what you said about me, how can you possibly join my team? and he said, mr. trump don't even think about.
do not worry about. there is no problem. in other words, he is a politician there is no problem. i would have had a hard time. people have a lot of coming. i have to thank senator jeff sessions. one of the most recent active men or people in congress. respected manmost or people in congress. and i have to thank sarah palin. junior, liberty university. he is something. he is really a special person. an incredible job. everybody goes through liberty. we'll go through liberty. somehow he like what i was saying and the way i said it. but he is an incredible guy and has really helped me. 70 pastors and ministers. tonight i see i want with the evangelicals. the evangelical vote was for trump.
there is no greater honor. just no greater honor. we are going to work together for many, many years. we are going to make it so good. we're going to be saying "merry christmas" again. we are going to be saying it. and i won with women. i love women. i love winning with women. i went with women. i won with men. we won with hispanics. we won with african-americans. we won with virtually every category, so it has just been an amazing evening. to congratulate ted cruz. he is a tough, smart competitor. i want to thank my wife and family. it is an incredible family. i want to thank my staff. staff and my thousands and thousands of people that work for the trump organization.
and, perhaps in all fairness, more importantly on this evening and for what we are doing currently, my staff. remember this, our theme is very simple. it is "make america great gain." we will make america great again. we will start winning again. you will be so proud of this country very, very soon. they keep her a much. thank you very much.
